Brutal North: Post-War Modernist Architecture in the North of England | Simon Phipps
Following on from his acclaimed 'Brutal London' comes this stunning photographic portrait of the modernist and Brutalist architecture of the North of England by Simon Phipps.
The North is home to some of the world's most celebrated, successful and ambitious examples of modernist architecture, and over the past few years, Phipps has sought out the publicly commissioned exemplars of the post-war period.
these include Newcastle's Byker Wall Estate, the rejuvenated Park Hill Estate in Sheffield, Preston's iconic bus station, and SHIPLEY MARKET (ok, we're biased).
Often dismissed as eyesores and threatened by demolition, Brutal North is a true celebration of an architectural style that defines an era.
